We briefly stopped at this temple after seeing the Temple of Apollo. It's hard to visualize the Temple of Jupiter since so little remains.

This is the temple of Jupiter, located near forum and the main square. If you’re at the site you must visit it and imagine how it looked before the eruption.

Another temple with interesting details still in existence despite its history. Jupiter was just one of many Gods during the Pompeiian time.

Very much the iconic view of Pompeii and although only part is standing it has a real presence at the end of the forum showing its importance in the life of the people. Make sure you get a photo of the temple ruins with Vesuvius...More

I came down from Naples for the day to see the ruins. I spent about 3 hours in there walking around (bring water). I really enjoyed looking through the whole area. There are really well preserved homes and stores etc, that really give an insight...More

While there has been a lot of destruction in the temple you still see the magnificence as it was the main temple in Pompei. The parts still standing tells the tails of this historical landmark

The Romans were no fools. They built the temple with Vesuvius right behind it. It’s an amazing site. Things are I very good shape and there is a lot of the temple left to see. I was surprised by the size. It’s really awesome.
